A weekly update on Minnesotans Tyus Jones (Apple Valley, Duke), Reid Travis (DeLaSalle, Stanford) and Rashad Vaughn (Cooper, UNLV):
Jones is receiving plenty of fanfare, but don't necessarily expect him to be a first-round pick in the NBA draft this summer. It's not a lock that he leaves after one season, and although ESPN's Kevin Pelton has the point guard second on his Statistical Big Board (which looks at wins above replacement player, or WARP), most mock drafts — eyeing his lack of size and NBA-ready athleticism — have him as a borderline first-rounder at this point. … Travis had eight rebounds Thursday in a loss at Oregon State, his most since missing most of January to a stress fracture. … Vaughn remains sidelined by a torn meniscus.
